This month the Birmingham.pm Social Meeting is something rather special. We'll be celebrating TEN years of Birmingham.pm. While there are several other groups around the world who have been in existence longer, I think we are the second longest (uninterrupted) running group in the UK.
Last month we had a special guest in our midst, when Mike Bissett came to visit, who I co-founded Birmingham.pm with after our trip to OSCON in 2000. We started small, and have since ebbed and flowed over the years. We are still have a core group of regular attendees, several who pop along when they can, and around 80+ members on the mailing list. Thanks to everyone who has helped to keep Birmingham Perl Mongers interesting over the years, and we'll raise a toast to all those that can't make it this Wednesday.
For those who can get along, please feel free to invite colleagues, friends, partners (and anyone who might enjoy a drink ;)) and help us celebrate our tenth birthday with an evening of beer, food and good company this Wednesday at The Dragon Inn on Hurst Street.
There are unofficial reports that there may be cake too!
I should be there from about 5.30pm onwards, so you're more than welcome to join me earlier if you want. See you there.
We are one of the UK's largest Perl user groups, representing Birmingham UK to the international Perl community since 2000. We hold monthly social and technical presentations, and several of our members are now regular attendees and speakers at the YAPC::Europe Perl Conferences.
